Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2


Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Homily Alert!

Fr. JC Maximilian: Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

We Christians can be as greedy, materialistic, and thrill-seeking as anyone else. Too often we fail to make our eternal salvation the central goal of our lives, and instead focus just on the here-and-now, on this world. And in doing so we can be just as unhappy, just as lost, feeling just as abandoned and empty as anyone else.

Jesus looks on us with great feelings of pity. What must we do? First we must acknowledge the basic truth of reality, namely, that it is God who is the source and chief protagonist of all that is, all that surrounds us, and all that is within us. When we recognize the centrality of God, then we can sing out with today’s Responsorial Psalm the joy in recognizing ourselves as created by God, and of being the object of God’s love.
